Taxpayers and tax professionals use accounting method changes as a powerful mechanism to implement valuable tax strategies as well as to remove IRS audit exposure. As a tax planning tool, accounting methods help taxpayers implement cost segregation studies and energy efficiency incentives, adopt favorable provisions of the Tangible Property Regulations, and numerous other tax minimization strategies. Accounting methods also help taxpayers correct improper methods to eliminate audit risk. Upon completion of the course, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand several popular accounting method changes
  • Discuss recent tax rule changes
  • Complete and file Form 3115 – Application for Change in Accounting Method

CPE Credit: Participants can earn 2 CPE credit in the Accounting field of study. Please note that CPE credit is only available for viewing the live program.
